May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2017/18) there are twenty five children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development

-Literacy

-Mathematics

-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

During terms 5 & 6 we will be enjoying all kinds of stories as our topic is Once upon a time.... . We will be producing posters, poems and stories based on old favourites such as the Gruffalo, stories from different cultures such as Anansi the Spider and traditional tales such as the Three Little Pigs. We will be interviewing our families about their favourite childhood books and scaring them with the hanging spiders in the corridor. There will be lots of drama and we have our own Gruffalo cave in the classroom. We will be making our own paper and finding out about early writing. Paint and collage materials will be used to make storybook characters. In term 6 we will enjoy weekly visits from September's new Reception.

Remember to look at the photos on our topic wall to see how busy we are.
